A Republican Governor is making history.
The Governor Kay Ivey has signed into law a ban on abortion in the state of Alabama. This legislation will be the most restrictive against the practice since abortion was legalized 46 years ago.
It also marks the start of what is shaping up to be an ugly battle for the rights of unborn lives.
It many ways this was the plan all along. Those supporting the bill expected to be met with heavy resistance and be forced to take the matter to a higher court. This will set the stage to change the nation. If the bill continues to move forward and ultimately wins in court, it will fundamentally change the United States and set the stage for other states to follow suit.
While the battle has begun, it is only getting started and there is a long way to go from here.
